Toy News: Clearer photos of Masterpiece Road Rage

Introduced to the "Transformers" universe in 2002, "Road Rage" was a redeco of the G1 Tracks figure taking on the colors that were used for Tracks on the back of the boxes from the 1985 toy packaging. With the upcoming "Masterpiece" Tracks figure there will also be a redeco and retool as Road Rage! Thanks to sponsor Bigbadtoystore we now have clearer photos of this figure!

Toy News: New "Transformers Legends" Leader Class Megatron photos released

Amazon Japan has released updated photos of "Legends" Leader Class Megatron. In an interesting reversal of usual practice the Takara colors are toned down from the Hasbro colors to better reflect his animated appearance instead of his G1 toy's deco. This offers a cool alternative for fans who want a more "cartoon accurate" Megatron!

Toy News: Who is included with Takara Tomy Legends Ultra Magnus?

A photo has surfaced online that appears to be our first look at a painted sample of the upcoming "Legends" Takara Tomy release of the Leader Class Ultra Magnus figure! The surprise is that unlike his US counterpart, the small figure included with Magnus will be Alpha Trion! This totally works since the "Minimus Ambus" figure does have a mustache/beard style face with ornate armor design. I'm personally very excited for this deco!

Toy News: New "Unite Warriors" Superion image

The ever awesome TF Yuki has updated his Twitter account with an image of a production copy of "Unite Warriors" Superion combined! This set features the classic five Aerialbots combined. One of the biggest differences you'll note is the use of grey plastic for the fists and feet, which is different from the black plastic used outside of Japan. This pays homage to the G1 Superion toy in a wonderful fashion.
